THOMPSON v. KORNEGAY.
69219.
BENHAM, Judge.
Trover. Fulton State Court. Before Judge Bruner.
Appellee sued in trover to recover a diamond ring in the possession of appellant. At trial, appellee testified that he purchased the diamond as an investment and agreed to permit appellant to wear it on condition that she return it to him upon request. At the close of all the evidence, the trial court granted appellee's motion for a directed verdict. In this appeal from the judgment entered on directed verdict, appellant's sole argument is that the directed verdict was improper because appellee's testimony was impeached, creating a jury question as to his credibility and, therefore, as to all his testimony.
Since appellee unequivocally asserted ownership of the ring and appellant's agreement to return it on request, and appellant presented no evidence to counter appellee's, a verdict for appellee was demanded.
D. R. Jones, D. Richard Jones III, Reagan W. Dean, for appellee.
William P. Walker, Jr., for appellant.
DECIDED JANUARY 30, 1985 -- REHEARING DENIED FEBRUARY 13, 1985.
